The Honda Civic starts a little higher as standard, but prices even out as you move up the trim level lineup.

Civic vs. Corolla: Power and MPG

The Honda Civic delivers exceptional performance from one of two engines:

  • 2.0L Engine: Standard for up to 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque.
  • Turbocharged 4-Cylinder Engine: Available for up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

In the words of Car and Driver: “Its smooth ride, responsive steering, and athletic driving dynamics make it a joy to pilot”. 2021 Toyota Corolla engine options fail to hold pace:

  • Standard 1.8L 4-Cylinder: Delivers up to 139 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque.
  • Available 2.0L 4-Cylinder: Delivers up to 169 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque.

The Corolla also fails to match the peak efficiency scores of the Honda Civic with CVT and turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which makes:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 32 mpg in the city and 42 on the highway**

Civic vs. Corolla: Features and Safety

The Honda Civic offers a Multi-View Rearview Camera to provide greater peace of mind while parking than the Corolla’s static rearview camera, but both provide the following state of the art safety features as standard:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

In terms of comfort and entertainment features, the Honda Civic is far more compelling than the Toyota Corolla. It’s the only model of the two with:

  • 10-Speaker Premium Sound System
  • Heated Outboard Rear Seats
  • Leather-Trimmed Seats
